The Cambridge introduction to the novel by Marina MacKay( Book )

"Beginning its life as the sensational entertainment of the eighteenth century, the novel has become the major literary genre of modern times. Drawing on hundreds of examples of famous novels from all over the world, Marina MacKay explores the essential aspects of the novel and its history: where novels came from and why we read them; how we think about their styles and techniques, their people, plots, places, and politics. Between the main chapters are longer readings of individual works, from Don Quixote to Midnight's Children. A glossary of key terms and a guide to further reading are included, making this an ideal accompaniment to introductory courses on the novel"--Provided by publisher
Modernism and World War II by Marina MacKay( Book )
18 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 398 libraries worldwide
The Second World War marked the beginning of the end of literary modernism in Britain. However, this late period of modernism and its response to the War have not yet received the scholarly attention they deserve. In the first full-length study of modernism and World War II, Marina MacKay offers historical readings of Virginia Woolf, Rebecca West, T.S. Eliot, Henry Green and Evelyn Waugh set against the dramatic background of national struggle and transformation. In recovering how these major authors engaged with other texts of their time - political discourses, mass and middlebrow culture - this study reveals how World War II brought to the surface the underlying politics of modernism's aesthetic practices. Through close analyses of the revisions made to modernist thinking after 1939, MacKay establishes the significance of this persistently neglected phase of modern literature as a watershed moment in twentieth-century literary history

Modernism, War, and Violence by Marina MacKay( Book )
3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
The modernist period was an era of world war and violent revolution. Covering a wide range of authors from Joseph Conrad and Thomas Hardy at the beginning of the period to Elizabeth Bowen and Samuel Beckett at the end, this book situates modernism's extraordinary literary achievements in their contexts of historical violence, while surveying the ways in which the relationships between modernism and conflict have been understood by readers and critics over the past fifty years. Ranging from the colonial conflicts of the late 19th century to the world wars and the civil wars in between, and concluding with the institutionalization of modernism in the Cold War, Modernism, War, and Violence provides a starting point for readers who are new to these topics and offers a comprehensive and up-to-date survey of the field for a more advanced audience

The English novel after modernism : the novel at mid-century ( Book )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
What happened to British fiction after modernism? What sort of thing was the novel at mid-century? This book provides a new literary and historical context for a generation of brilliant writers whose work has been hard to categorize. Arguing that labels such as 'realist' and 'experimental' have failed to do justice to the transitional nature of the mid-century novel, the contributors reveal how writers paid their debts to their modernist predecessors while creating a kind of fiction that was newly sensitive to the 'tired horror', in novelist Elizabeth Taylor's apt phrase, of an age marked by increasing violence and national decline. Bringing together exemplary close readings by academics, writers and critics, British Fiction After Modernism pays a long overdue tribute to those writers who re-shaped the British novel for the postwar generation
